He's here!

Everyone, meet the newest addition to our family, Kubrick!

After a long trip trying to get him here (he did SO well on the plane - slept on my lap the whole way and didn't make a sound), Kubrick has finally arrived.

These are the pictures I thought looked best... some are of the hotel last night and others are of him here at home. He is a very good dog... doesn't mind strangers or other dogs and really likes kids. His one problem, I have to say, is barking, and I don't mean at other people (we just had food delivered and Kubrick didn't even look at the door - or care at all that the doorbell rang), he barks when he wants my attention and I've been ignoring him when he barks, but he will keep it up for a long while. We put him in his expen so that we could have dinner (it's still in the same room - he could see us) and he totally flipped out, barking and whining. We tried shush, quiet and spraying water and then it came down to ignoring him (for an almost non-stop ten minutes). I only took him out after he had the barking/whining stopped for at least one minute straight and gave him lots of attention, but he did bark for a long time and I'm worried about the neighbors. Hopefully we can break him out of this sometime soon, but it's still the first day and I guess I'm expecting too much.

He is stuck to me like glue... goes wherever I go and goes berserk if I leave one room to go into the next and he can't follow (no barking though - yay!). He is very loving and gives lots of kisses... I feel very loved and of course I already love him and his sweet face.

PS: He is really good about using the pee pads for pee but not for poop... we'll work on that one. One step at a time.

He is the cutest thing! You must want to hug him all the time. I know I do. Enjoy every minute with the newest member of your family.

Lina,
Congrat! he is so adorble. He is probably missing his litermates. You might try getting a snuggle puppy with a heart beat.
You are doing the right thing with the barking. Maybe you could try the coins in a can trick? Put some coins in a tin can and tape the top. When he barks shake the can or throw the can near him. Most pups don't like the loud noise and will think his barking caused it. Don't let him see you throw or shake the can. When he stops praise him and say, good boy quiet. Hope this helps!!

Lina, he is SOOOOOOOO cute!
I am glad you finally made it home.

His color is almost identical to Stogie at that age.
